The MYC Kayaking program organizes approximately six to eight kayak paddles each summer in the bays, ponds, rivers, and streams of Cape Cod. Rich Simpson and Mark McManus lead the group, but others in the group take charge of leading individual paddles, researching tides and routes and leading the group on the water.


Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs, i.e. life-vests) are required equipment. The trips are typically 3 to 5 miles and a couple of hours in duration, with a mid-paddle stop for a rest and snack. The schedule is publicized club-wide, but you need to be on the MYC Kayaking email list (myc.kayaking@gmail.com) to receive last-minute notices of changes or cancellations due to wind or weather. The group does easy to easy-intermediate paddles, and only when the weather and wind forecast is very good.


Some of the group's past kayak trips are posted on the Past Kayak Trips page, for the benefit of club members who want to do these trips on their own.
